DailyTheocentrism: If salvific election were not sure, it would have been possible that Christ die for no one. – JI Packer
How absurd it is to leave such movements of reality, yea THE MAIN EVENT of the Gospel, into the hands of men.
To have a fuller version of this, read J.I. Packer’s introduction in Death of Deaths by John Owen.
“Salvific” – the adjective form of salvation (just in case)
It can truly be said, that while Christ was here, holding Himself on the cross, he was holding the molecules of His tormenters and mockers together, while he was holding the breath in their lungs that they used to hurl insults at him, while He was holding the planet on its axis, while He was holding the universe together, while He was holding the galaxy in place, while He was . . .
Might and grace – may I never forget.
